Jasper Knight quotes – “I was planning a show in London last year (2007) so I hired a tugboat and went down the river Thames for a whole day and saw that it is a working harbour. I usually use a mixed media for my paintings; enamel, Masonite, Perspex, old signs, building materials, anything with an industrial feel. It was an exciting challenge to use the different medium of silkscreen for these new works and I am delighted.
“My work has always straddled painting and the constructed object. In the past, my materials have added to the narrative content, or sometimes to the context, of the depicted scenes. My recent work has explored this relationship between material and subject, between constructed object and painted surface, in a more abstract way. The subject matter, from wharves to cars, from chairs to landscape, helps explore these binary concerns and is treated in a highly architectural and linear way.” Jasper Knight
